Seasonal jobs could be an option and there are employers looking to hire.
The United States Postal Service is preparing for one of its busiest holiday seasons.
USPS Honolulu District Human Resources Manager Kevin Nakaoka said that they are looking for even more temporary help than in previous years.
Nakaoka said, “This year is the most holiday employees we’re seeking out, the most. I mean years before, we’re looking at maybe 100 or 150 people.”
